Why did the CFL endorse Maureen Masterson Pulia for 4th Subcircuit judge?? She apparently has been a Republican for her entire political career up to this election, and ran as a Republican in 2008 and 2010; she is rated "Not Qualified" by the Illinois State Bar Association and the Chicago Council of Lawyers; and, according to other endorsers, has no litigation experience which disqualify her in their opinion.I really want to cast an informed vote here. Can you explain your reasoning here? There are 2 other candidates who get much better ratings, especially John Mahoney. Why was Masterson Pulia endorsed over these others? Thank you!
